ADIA CEO Update: Your input requested - Cybersecurity of Legacy Medical Devices
The TGA is calling for comments on behalf of the International Medical Device Regulators Forum (IMDRF).
The original consultation in 2019 asked for feedback on Cybersecurity of Medical Devices. This year, the consultation will focus specifically on legacy medical devices and the security issues faced, as technology advances during the Total Product Life Cycle (TPLC).
"As medical devices become more connected, there is the potential to impact patient safety. This is evident as cybersecurity incidents have rendered medical devices and hospital networks inoperable, disrupting the delivery of patient care across healthcare facilities worldwide.
The purpose of the draft framework is to promote a globally harmonized approach to medical device cybersecurity that at a fundamental level ensures the safety and performance of medical devices while encouraging innovation. The framework is intended to provide medical device cybersecurity guidance for stakeholders across the device lifecycle." Medical Device Cybersecurity Guide Working Group, IMDRF.
